AWARDS & GAMES

What's it really all about? Winning state championships or getting an education? Getting excited about our school performing well on the field, court, course or range; or getting more excited to learn that your softball team has a TEAM GPA of 3.71?
The focus SHOULD be on education but we fall short of realizing that at times! Thankfully, Good Hope isn't like that. The major focus is on school! Yes, it's great to have success in athletics but it is even more important to have success in the classroom!
The National Fastpitch Coaches Association honored Cara Goodwin two years in a row with First Team All American Status! I'm sure that everyone with area code 256 knows that! But do they also know that she (along with several others) were also honored with the All American Scholar Athlete awards as well?
This year is no different and we applaud the staff, administration and students at Good Hope for their cotinued focus on education. Coach Harris announced today the list of 17 players in the Good Hope Lady Raider Softball program that qualified for this honor.
Savannah Blackmon, Bailie Andrews, Darby Randolph, Maegan Sterling, Jami Stinson, MyKale Lowe, Elise Whitworth, Josie McDonald, Maddison Graveman, Sadie Fendley, Derekia Tankersley, Kayla Tillman, Alannah Henke, Cara Goodwin, Darcie Wilson, Bailey Starnes and Hannah Smith were honored for their gpa last year.
Again, the entire team GPA was 3.71.
GO LADY RAIDERS!
